Five short comic sketches, all unrelated to each other, except that they are all expressions of Italian sexual humor. In one sketch, Marty Feldman plays a bodyguard, hired by her father to watch a young woman; he watches her a little too closely. In another, while Barbara Bouchet's husband is out of town on business, a stranger offers her twenty million lire in return for sex. Three times he offers, three times she protests and then consents, only to find out in the end that both the man and his sixty million lire are -- oh, but that would spoil the ending. :-) Written by

It's a little hard to judge this film given the painfully unfunny dubbing of the English-language version. The people that dubbed these things often didn't seem to take their jobs too seriously and this is especially true of these Italian comedies where they apparently felt they had to "add" to the humor by giving their characters stupid voices. Unfortunately, giving goofy voices to gorgeous foreign actresses like Barbara Bouchet and Edwige Fenech doesn't make the movie any funnier, just a lot less sexy. (Strangely, the one American here, Sydney Rome, doesn't seem to have been dubbed, but it's kind of hard to tell as she talks in a stupid and annoying voice naturally).
Conceptually and visually the humor is a bit stronger. The Tomas Milan character's coke-bottle glasses and hat with a long feather that becomes "erect" when he gets excited are not nearly as funny as the filmmakers seem to think, but the famously bug-eyed comedian Marty Feldman does some fine physical humor in "The Bodyguard" sketch about a bodyguard who takes his job VERY seriously, not leaving the side of his female charge even when she is in the bath or making love.
The movie does seem to heap a lot of humiliation on the most beautiful women in the cast (typical for Italian sex comedies I guess). Barbara Bouchet is tricked into having sex with a randy business partner of her husband in the first sketch (which is pretty clever, at least) and Edwige Fenech plays a society woman who accidentally has sex with the wrong partner, who turns out to be the most overweight and grotesque of the grotesque Italian men on the street corner that leer at her everyday as she walks by in tight skirts. If they absolutely had to humiliate the female cast members, they should have gone with the irritating Sydney Rome rather than class acts like Bouchet and Fenech, but Rome gets off pretty easy playing a sexy woman with a very vicious dog in the final sketch. OK movie, but not great
